Gosh its really warming up here in Australia, with Summer in full swing and I was dying to try out a sleeveless version of our Daisy pattern, mashed with the tiered skirt from our Poppy pattern. I also wanted to see how it would look with lace between the tiers.
Riley Blake Designs Rose and Violets Garden, designed by Miss Rose Sister Violet was just the most perfect range for this project.The range has a real vintage feel and is just so sweet, with darling soft pastel florals, stripes and the cutest little birds.
I decided to use the gathering foot on my Babylock Acclaim overlocker to gather the tiers! Wow what a game changer - the foot allows you to gather while attaching it to the another piece of fabric and finishes the seam all at once! Talk about time saving and easy. I layered the lace over the tier and gathered that in between too, giving this sweet vintage look that complimented the gorgeous fabric.
I love how the dress turned out, the tiers gave it the perfect twirl factor, and the little touch of lace the extra sweetness!
Happy pattern mashing!
